Best Days to Release Podcasts

It’s Time to Put an End to the Guessing Game. 

To find out when podcasts release episodes, we examined data collected by Podchaser over six months across the top 50K podcasts.

We then segmented podcast episode release data by category and the number of podcasts with at least one episode published on that day to refine the analysis further. 

Using our podcast episode release data, podcasters, podcast networks, and advertisers can better understand listener habits and identify content gaps in the market.
